UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying Group H

Group H of UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying was one of the ten groups to decide which teams would qualify for the UEFA Euro 2020 finals tournament.[1] Group H consisted of six teams: Albania, Andorra, France, Iceland, Moldova and Turkey,[2] where they played against each other home-and-away in a round-robin format.[3]

The top two teams, France and Turkey, qualified directly for the finals. Unlike previous editions, the participants of the play-offs were not decided based on results from the qualifying group stage, but instead based on their performance in the 2018–19 UEFA Nations League.
